'It is the intelligence which is important—not the matter, not the chemistry, but the intelligence within,' said Dr Peter Swan, creator of a comprehensive course in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture which he has taught around the world.
He was referring to a shift, acknowledged by Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, away from relying on chemicals for every aspect of agriculture—from soil fertility to pest control—to utilizing the inherent intelligence of the plants, soil, and environment.
'For example,' Dr Swan said, 'there are billions of organisms in every teaspoon of soil—billions of organisms—and every one of those organisms is alert and intelligent, protecting and nourishing themselves and their neighbors, promoting the good of the whole, which means, in the soil, increasing fertility.'
A trend in agriculture is to return to methods which are tried and true. These methods, like organics and permaculture, have been used for thousands of years without fanfare and without the need for chemicals.
In addition, these methods enhance the soil naturally, thus protecting its biological balance.
Dr Swan remarked on the importance of balance, especially when it comes to food.
'In our own human physiology, we get our nutrients from the food that we eat, from the crops that we eat. Now if those crops have got some imbalance, where would it come from? In all likelihood, it would come from the soil. If the soil has an imbalance, then surely that would be passed on to the crop and to us, as the eaters of the crop.
'So we have to create balance in each aspect of that soil–food web, and this is the value of all of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's technologies,' Dr Swan said, highlighting the ability of Maharishi's programmes and technologies to restore natural balance in every area of life.
Because every level of life is nourished by agriculture, whether directly or indirectly, this balance is important to the individual and the whole society.
